Clever storage idea for kids rooms: paper bags
It's Fri-yay so you know what this means? It's Mini Style day! This week we are looking at clever, stylish and more importantly, reasonably-priced, storage ideas for kids rooms.
Decorating a baby nursery or a kids room and make it look fabulous without breaking the bank is one thing, maintaining it pretty looking and clutter free is a whole new ball game. At Stella + the Stars we've become slightly obsessed with storage bags made of paper and have trawled the web for the coolest designs.
Toy storage paper bags are reusable, resistant, virtually unbreakable, have no sharp edges, and therefore are one of the easiest ways to hide and store all those toys at the end of a long day. And no DIY is required which is always a bonus. Below are our top 5.
Mon Petit Zoréol
Founded by a French mama based in Paris (another cool lady I 'met' on Instagram), Mon Petit Zoréol stocks a wide range of paperbags and also gives you the option to personalise the design. They ship to the UK. Available from www.monpetitzoreol.com Prices from £10.
Etsy is possibly my favourite e-shop in the universe. You can literally find ANYTHING handmade or vintage, from art to fashion and furniture. It's a virtual Alladin's Cave for design lovers who like to find unique and quirky items. I fell in love with Spudy & Co's paper bags. They have really cool designs and also do custom orders if you'd like to have your kids' name for example. Available at Etsy.com. From £12.50.
Le sac en papier
If you're looking for something that would fit in both a kids room and your living room, check out Le Sac en Papier / The Paper Bag by Be-Poles. Designed and made in France, they are just the most stylish and simple way to store toys and clutter. Available from www.peastyle.co.uk. Prices start from £8.50.
I love the contrast of the neon lettering of these paper sacks by Kolor. Made from double-ply white reinforced paper with a brown inner, these add a bit of colour to a monochrome scheme. Kolor is a small design company based in Germany. Available from www.thismodernlife.co.uk. £7.50.
